2016 Domaine Benedetti "Larmes Papales" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The special cuvée is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Larmes Papales, 100% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks and demi-muids. Just sensational anyway you look at it, with flamboyant notes of blackberries, roasted herbs, melted licorice, and Asian spices, this beauty is ripe, powerful, and full-bodied, with sweet tannin and a great finish. It’s for the Grenache lovers out there and will keep for 10-15 years. Despite its rich, powerful style, this beauty just glides over the palate. Bravo!" (08/2018) 95 points Robert P...

92 points James Suckling: "From a single parcel of old bush-vine grenache on red-slate soil, this has aromas of dried red flowers and raspberries with leaves and gentle pastry notes. The palate has a very plush and ripe core of raspberry flavors with some red plums and redcurrants The tannins finish very ripe. " (11/2020) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top Garnacha is the 2017 La Ermita de Santa Bárbara, produced with grapes from a vineyard in the village of Tabuenca in Campo de Borja, low-yielding 50-year-old vines on red soils. The gra...

97 points Decanter: "Expressive aromas of ripe red cherries with balsamic nuances.This is a superb Garnacha, it has such a generous fruit and lovely texture of sweet integrated tannins. (2019 Platinum, Decanter World Wine Awards)" (04/2019) 91 points James Suckling: "This is ripe and fruity, yet there is linear form to it that gives it length and energy. Lots of smoke and fruit at the end." (07/2019) K&L Notes: Based in the Southern Rioja Alta village of Badarán, Martínez Alesanco is a bodega producing expressive, regionally specific wines at very re...

94 points James Halliday: "Hand picked from 2 very old vineyards, in Blewitt Springs and Clarendon, on sand and clay respectively. I have criticised earlier vintages of this wine as abstemious and ascetic. Grenache, after all, is a later ripener equipped with joyous fruit and (when made well) a jittery kit of briary tannins to confer a whiff of savouriness. And so it goes. Lots of whole-berry florals and juby red-fruit riffs. Complex hints of orange rind, sassafras, turmeric and clove, to boot. Warmth and mineral tannic rasp as an effortless whole. Delic...

Native South African Bryan MacRobert grew up in a farming family, and has been quietly making some of that country's best value wines. He fell in love with a girl from Rioja as well as the region's wines (we forget in which order) but quickly became fascinated with the inimitable terroirs and endless potential for wines in the region. A proponent not only of organic viticulture, but also a strong believer in the importance of legacy organically cultivated vines on top quality sites, Bryan is picky about where he grows and sources vines. The winemaking is...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark and deep aromas of black cherry, sarsaparilla, baked earth and crushed rocks show on the nose of this bottling. It's a hearty display of Grenache, offering roasted cherry and berry flavors as well as cola and cracked pepper spices. (MK)" (10/2020) K&L Notes: Despite its southerly latitude, Santa Barbara is home to the state’s coolest wine regions. The coastal mountains run east-west here rather than the usual north-south direction. The county is directly exposed to the ocean, its cold afternoon winds, and chilly night-t...

94 points John Gilman: "This is the first 'stand alone' Grenache bottled by Halcón Vineyards, with the wine having been fermented with forty percent whole clusters, indigenous yeasts and it was raised in a single, five hundred liter puncheon of used French oak. It comes in at an even fourteen percent alcohol and delivers a superb young nose of raspberries, cherries, sweet stem tones, smoked meats, pepper, garrigue and a very complex base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, peppery and precise, with great transparency and grip, a s...

95 points James Halliday: "Oooh! I like this. Really! Quintessentially McLaren Vale, with those redcurrant jubes, molten kirsch, rose water, cranberry and pomegranate notes. Sweet-sour-crunchy. Most impressive is the broad brushstroke of tannin, partly due to an intelligent extraction regime and the choice of puncheons within which this delicious wine sat for 18 months. Drink on the cooler side. In large draughts." (08/2020)

94 points Decanter: "A fairly pale colour. Fresh, elegant, cherry-scented start, a little orange zest and raspberry. Generous in glycerol, quite jellied on the palate. The acidity helps to cut through the fat and alcohol – and the alcohol is high. Tannins however are fairly gentle and slight, classic of a sandy terroir. Ripe and solaire, very 2018, but has elegance and admirable freshness. 2,500 bottles made. Vines of over 100 years of age, a 1.2ha parcel of sand on the north of lieu-dit La Crau. Fermented in concrete, aged in old barriques. (MW)" (02/20...

96 points Decanter: "Blackberry, star anise and juniper. Only medium-bodied for a Châteauneuf, but this has plenty of impact and intensity. Lovely bright acid line and sense of freshness from start to finish. Silky and voluptuous. (MW)" (10/2020) 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape, all of which were tasted from barrel, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Safres should equal or surpass the 2018 as it has the same level of elegance and finesse, yet even better mid-palate depth and concentration. It’s beautifully done and we...

94 points Decanter: "Like his other cuvées, this has quite a pale, cherry-tinged colour with strawberry and a touch of sweetly earthy beetroot on the nose and sweet strawberry on the palate. It's an enjoyably low-extraction style, brimming with plump, juicy strawberry and a touch of caramel in the background. This is good now, and will be good with age too. Distinctive. From old vines at the south of lieu-dit La Crau, galets roulés. Fermented in concrete, aged in old barriques. (MW)" (02/2021) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on 100% Grenache sourced from...
